Reports on New Publishing Models
In July, 2007, the Ithaka organization released a report on scholarly publishing called University Publishing in a Digital Age. In it, they argue the importance of exploring new forms of publishing in the academic arena in order to achieve a greater global impact of programs, enhance reputations, and reduce costs. Many scholarly societies are taking notice and are considering changes in publishing. Below is a sampling of commentaries and reports on new publishing models from scholarly societies and other relevant organizations.
